10K Hill Climb Challenge! 

As you may have heard, BCCC is organizing a (fully SAG supported) ride with 10,000 feet of climbing in one day on May 30th, 2020.

The ride will take place as a “remote start” from Malibu and go through several of the infamous canyon climbs.

There’s plenty of time to start training (and dropping a few pounds!) in preparation for the big day.

Training rides to start in April.

For any questions, please contact either: Robert Pacifici or Bob Kellogg.

Referral from your editor, Mike Mosig :

In 2010, my brother and I purchased a condominium for our mother. This was shortly after the death of my father. My mom needed to move to a “senior living” community. This move later proved to be a big mistake both emotionally and financially for our family. My mom hated living there and the condo was a money pit. We needed to sell that condo quickly. Lesley Siegal was a fantastic realtor and great help during that difficult time. During the entire process, Leslie was most helpful and compassionate given our difficult circumstances and made the sale easy on the entire family. I am very happy to recommend Leslie Siegal as your Realtor!

A message from Voler:

At this time, based on the order given by our state and guidelines from our national government, we do not expect to be able to fully re-open our factory until May 4th. We are working with local authorities to see if there is a safe way to resume work, but until then we must prioritize the safety of employees and abide by California’s order to remain closed.

In-progress custom orders will be processed in the order they are received, and right now we are moving ship dates back six weeks from the original date to compensate for this closure. With so many unknowns right now, it’s very difficult to quote an exact delivery date.

Your order - Beach Cities Cycling Club is now scheduled to ship on 05/15/2020

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we prioritize the health of our staff and customers during this time. Please reach out to if you have any questions. We do have staff working remotely checking this account.

In good health,

Jeanette - Custom Sales Manager

A Message from Jim Hannon with South Bay Bicycling Coalition :

South Bay Bicycling Coalition (SBBC) Announcement,

I’d (Jim Hannon) like to kick-off what I hope will be a monthly contribution to the BCCClub Newsletter. The SBBC continues to be energetic in promoting bicycling in the South Bay and advocating for safer streets. Our news this month is the City of Redondo Beach is resurfacing Catalina Avenue, between Knob Hill and Palos Verdes Drive, and adding a 1.1 miles of Class II bike lanes; estimated completion Mid-April. For more updates, please follow us on the SBBC Facebook page.

Sincerely, SBBC Management
